“Soft Words are Like Roses”: Poetry Writing Workshop
Co-sponsored by & held at Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters
FREE and open to the public
After attending John Stauffer’s lecture on Charles Sumner and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow at Old North Church, join us for an afternoon of poetry writing and exercise your own talents! To begin, a Park Ranger will discuss a few of the people, places, and ideas that inspired the author of Paul Revere’s Ride to craft some of his famous works, as well as some which have receded into history. Then it will be your turn to create your own literary works of art! Supplies and snacks will be provided. Just bring yourself and your creativity! Advanced registration required. Please call (617)876-4491 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
Longfellow House–Washington’s Headquarters National Historic Site preserves the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, America’s most famous 19th century poet. It also served as George Washington’s first major Revolutionary War headquarters in 1775-6.
